salvaticus - breeding ground

here is a track from charlottesville, va's salvaticus. a heavy monolith of instrumental, blackish metal. this, for now, is the recording project of the drummer and guitar player from thus came, whom i posted about way back in the murky history of this spot. this track and the 4 song EP it is from offer long form blasts that listen more like suites, each lasting for about ten minutes. they work in movements, pulling participants through shades of darkness, at times winding down to acoustic guitars before blasting off again. here's the lead song, 'breeding ground'

jordan perry - boriska and old hake

here are some solo guitar musings from jordan perry, whose music was featured on the MFOA mixtape. These songs have a contemplative vibe, somewhere on the border between 'american primitive' fingerstyle guitar and classical composition i think, though i'm not an expert on those genres. unexpected nylon string dreamtones.

freddie nunez - runaway
